About Councilmember John Valdivia
Elected November 2011 with nearly 70% of the total vote, Councilman John Valdivia is committed to neighborhood values, and grew up in San Bernardino. John attended schools from K-12 in San Bernardino, and, with the exception of his college days in the mid-west, has been a proud resident of San Bernardino. John is committed to his local community and serves his community at large by volunteering in civic organizations. Prior to becoming an elected official, Valdivia had been appointed to various commissions by the San Bernardino City Council. In the summer of 2011, John resurrected Victoria Neighborhood Group, and just recently spearheaded the formation of Amtrak Neighborhood Group. Councilman Valdivia has encouraged these groups to report crime, foster "good neighbor" values, and civic pride in San Bernardino. John is a strong supporter of grassroots efforts and is committed to providing opportunities for residents to take back their streets and get involved.
John can best be described as passionate, energetic, and conscientious of the issues plaguing San Bernardino city hall and its local public policy. Councilman Valdivia often reminds himself of the credo, "If not ME, then WHO? and if not NOW, then WHEN?"
and abides by that conviction as he prepares for meetings, town hall presentations, and community advocacy on issues that will improve the quality of life for citizens in San Bernardino.
Councilman Valdivia carefully monitors policy in surrounding municipalities, along with county, state & federal programs, and, corresponding transportation initiatives that will impact the wallet of the local taxpayer & impact businesses. Furthermore, John often calls into question the priority list of the elected and compares it with the huge gap expressed from the constituents he serves.
Valdivia pursued undergraduate studies from Evangel University (Springfield, Missouri), and graduate studies from Fuller Seminary (Pasadena, CA), and Azusa Pacific University (Azusa, CA). In December 2011, John, and his wife, Bethany, proudly welcomed their son, Andrew, and are overjoyed with being new parents and balancing his duties representing residents in the 3rd Ward.
